A natural medicine
Being “one with nature” has good effects on people’s ph ysical and mental health and clearly shows that the forest environment makes us relaxed, calm and harmonious.
Forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku as it is actually called, came about in the 1980s and was coined in Japan with the aim of reducing stress by maki ng use of all the impressions and assets of the forest.
Färna’s location between a nature reserve and an eco-park provides fantastic opportunities for forest bathing. Here there are walking paths, two easily accessible lakes and beautiful, old forest with green oases that can become a sanctuary just for you. Our staff at reception will be happy to give you a map of the area.
